The Shipping and Admiralty law constitutes a separate field of law pertaining to matters relating to marine questions and offenses. It includes both the national law applicable to maritime activities and the international law governing the relation between private bodies operating on ships in the oceans. Despite each national legal system having its own legislation governing maritime issues, the shipping and admiralty law depends to a great extent from international law, including several multilateral agreements.
It deals with issues related to maritime trade, navigation, shipping, sailors and maritime transport of passengers and goods.
Maritime transport was one of the first channels of trade and the rules for resolving disputes related to shipping were developed early in world history.
Our firm specialises in this field, providing services and advice, assistance and legal representation both in judicial and extrajudicial fields of the Shipping and Admiralty law. Indicatively, we undertake the establishment and legal support of shipping companies in Cyprus, mergers and purchase and sale of shipping companies, registration of ships, yachts etc., drafting of shipping agreements, assistance in the financing of ship ownership, damages for loss or damage to cargo and goods, disputes, legal representation in court cased in the Naval Court, as well as tax issues related to the maritime sector.
